Q: Do all xtronic transmissions have a shudder when accelerating

asked by on

I purchased a used Nissan Pathfinder. I noticed a "shudder" when I test drove it. I asked why this might be, and was told it was probably because the car had been sitting. It does it every time you take off from a stop, and it's noticeable enough that people have asked what is wrong with it. I took it back to the dealer, and they said they don't notice any issue. Then I was told that all Nissans have this "shudder", due to the way the new transmissions are made. Is this true?

My car has 53000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: The transmission shudder is very common of ...

The transmission shudder is very common of a problem but is not normal and the transmission control module may be in need of reprogramming as per a technical bulletin NTB15-014B dated 4/5/2016. This is a recent TSB and may not of been known yet to the person that told you it was normal since the manufacturer did not have a fix yet. Have a dealer perform this TSB for you.
